Floridian rockers Yellowcard will release their final album, simply titled Yellowcard, on 30 September 2016 via Hopeless Records/Unified. The band will take their farewells on the road with The Final World Tour that kicks off in Texas in October, landing in Australia in February 2017.
The forthcoming self-titled album was a personal journey for the band; self-produced by Ryan Key and guitarist Ryan Mendez with long-time ally and close friend Neal Avron on board as Executive Producer. The album is available for pre-order here, which includes an instant download of opening track ‘Rest In Peace’.
Yellowcard will be a lasting finale for the band’s incredible journey that includes ten acclaimed albums and touring for almost two decades across six continents. Their most recent Australian tour was an incredible pop-punk match up with Mayday Parade that tore through the country in July 2015:
Joining Yellowcard for all Australian shows will be Sweden’s Like Torches, made up of lead-singing brothers Jonathan and Daniel Kärn and their childhood friends Zakarias, Jimmy and Erik.
Like Torches have been handpicked by Yellowcard to support them on the entire The Final World Tour. Audiences will be treated to tracks from the band’s self-funded debut and sophomore albums, including debut single ‘Missing It All’ (featuring vocals from Yellowcard’s Ryan Key) and ‘Swing By Swing’.
